Life May Have Been Beautiful

by Taylor Lyn   May 12, 2007

With you life may have been beautiful...
The touch of your lips, your soft smooth skin
feels so warm but we are surrounded by a shroud of cold.
The cold of hate, the cold of oblivion envelopes us, caressing me
Gently guiding me away from your arms.
With you life may have been beautiful...
this secret love we shared with vanity
slowly consuming us, draining away your beauty
robbing me of my innocence.
I hate this admiration I have for you.
These indescribable feelings
slowly killing me inside
Wishing I could wash away my memories of you...
Like love letters scribbled in the sand during high tide.
But no, its just not possible
to wash away the way I feel...
if only life was that easy.
With you life may have been beautiful
all of my dreams may have come true.
But you're so blinded by yourself
which leaves you so unwilling
to see life through anyone else's eyes.
With you life may have been beautiful
but sometimes beauty is just a farce.

    Wow this is really good I loved the last tqo lines. They spoke wonders about the person in your poem and about the relationship its self. This poem was amazing because it tells the story of a one sided love with such passion and feeling. I loved how you described it, the metaphores were beautiful. I loved how each word rang with love and with hatred. A definate 5/5 from me for managing to display those two conflicting emotions so flawlessly.

    This was beautiful...I particularly liked the metaphor that you used in this.
    Flow was good throughout the entire poem, and the imagery you used in this was beautifully done, it creates vivid pictures.

    The word farce... I like it. The piece overall was creative and emotional for you at least. I'm not sure if this is based on personal experiences or not it's hard to tell when so many people just write to ryhme. Regardless Great piece. Maybe sometime you can check out the few pieces I wrote and comment to see how I can improve because your writting is admirable
